The Rebel Strain
In the 1960s, the myth that Acapulco Gold is one of the strongest strains ever spread throughout all of America. Additionally, the strain was highlighted by Cheech and Chong in the iconic “You wanna get high, man?” sequence from the cult classic movie “Up in Smoke,” further enhancing its notoriety.
It also maintained its high demand thanks to its exotic aspect, especially in American counterculture movement hotspots like cities and colleges. The strain filled the joints of hippies in the 1960s and 1970s as it traveled from the Pacific coast of Mexico into America.
